To learn how to do those fancy tricks you've seen before you will need:

  • A basketball
  • A place to practice
  • A list of tricks you want to learn
  1. The first step to learning how to do basketball tricks is making a list of tricks you are interested in.  It is best to start with tricks that are of a beginner level. These tricks would include the crossover dribble, behind the back dribble, behind the back pass, spinning the ball on your finger, dribbling the ball between your legs, and spider dribble. 
  2. Once you make your list of beginner tricks you should search for tutorials on the Internet.  If you are looking for good video tutorials of basketball tricks then you should check out Youtube.
  3. The next step in the process is to practice as much as you can.  Not only should you practice the tricks that you picked out, but you should also practice dribbling with both hands, while standing still, and while moving around.  This is the only way you will get better.
  4. After you feel confident that you are able to do the basketball tricks then you should gather an audience to show off to.  This can be your friends or family members.
  5. The final step is to find more tricks to perform and learn.  Your list of tricks should be ever growing and as your skill increases so should the difficulty of your basketball tricks.
